Yep definitely. Say exactly what you've written here.
I was signed off at 26-28 weeks, can't remember when exactly...
Id say a dr would but would it be worth talking to your employer?
I know that in my field if you are safe to work but need to alter your duties to make it safe they are required to do it.
Might be worth considering.
Have you talked to your employer about this? I am sure they would want to know and do what they can to make sure you are safe.
Only thing with sick leave is that after it runs out you'll be on unpaid sick leave, whereas if there is a genuine safety issue and work can't provide you with a safe job, then you could potentially access paid "no safe job" leave.
It's hard to say without knowing all the details but I would definitely discuss with your employer rather than just getting signed off by a Dr and it all comes as a shock to them (assuming you haven't already talked about it with them of course).
As I haven't been there long enough, I won' t be getting any leave entitlements. Pretty much when I leave that is it. They can't change my classes so I am stuck with this naughty class. Can not describe the stress it is causing me, just want my doctor to sign me off so my baby doesn't suffer anymore, also feel my partber will be more accepting if the doctor recommends I leave work.
Also, principal knows I am pregnant but has asked I do not tell any staff or students. Even though he knew I.still got put on the oval for sport in 36 degree heat for 2 hours.
If you are stressed you need to chat to your husband. There is nothing stopping you from resigning- you don't need a doctor to do that for you.
Yeah if you don't get any paid leave or parental leave so they won't hold your job for you I would just resign? Are you still in your probation period?
I am an assistant principal and if you make clear your concerns then they need to accommodate you. As for not telling anyone, it's nine of the principals business who you tell, they can't dictate that to you.
